Arad Activates Emergency Host Family Program

JewishPress Logo

The city of Arad activated its emergency wartime and disaster host family list Wednesday morning.

The program goes into action whenever individuals and families in other parts of the country need respite and a safe place to stay. The last time program coordinators made calls to the list was during Operation Pillar of Defense, when families from communities targeted by rocket fire were welcomed into local homes throughout Arad.

The city is located in the northeastern corner of the Negev, high above the southernmost tip of the Dead Sea. Founded in the 1960s as a development town, Arad is not considered a target for missile-launching terrorists, since the city is very small and its location is remote.
